Daniel told me the news of your passing and I was saddened by it. Although it's been over a year and a half since I saw you I am certain that we would have laughed like we always did. Part of the fun of going to Dave's was always seeing you and man do I recall some great memories! John 14 1-2 says “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?"

Ryan - your chains have been removed you are in His Kingdom and in your room! My blessings to his family and you will be missed.

Safe passage on the rail to Valhalla. One of the nicest guy I've ever known. Always a smile or a laugh.

Just so many memories. A friend of not only myself but all my siblings and my mom. We spent days and days on end together with so many funny hysterical moments. My heart goes out to Ryan’s family. We lost a beautiful soul.

My fondest memories of Ryan go back to middle and high school and summer time. I remember meeting up and talking about everything while watching everyone skate around. Ryan took me on my first real date with a boy, we went to the movies to see Dante's Peak. He was so kind and so sweet and I'd like to think that never changed. We fell out of touch after high school as most people do, and I hadn't heard his name till I received the news of his passing. Ryan, you will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you for all the memories.
- Karyn
